The Titanic Museum
We started the morning off a little bit later than previous days as we were out later the night before.  We planned to make this day a time to just do a bunch of odd and end things that we had not yet had a chance to enjoy.  We started the day off with a quick bite to eat at the resort before heading out.  We first stopped at the Titanic museum.  We were each given a boarding pass at the beginning of the tour with the name of one of the passengers of the Titanic on it.  After taking the tour of the museum the last stop was in a room where it listed all the names of the Titanic passengers.  There we were able to determine if "our person" survived or perished.  Then we decided to take a ride on the Branson Duck.
The Titanic Museum
  We boarded a replica of an old military vehichle known for it's ability to operate both on land and in the water.  We were each given a "quacker" to blow during certain occasions such as when going up hills, going into and out of the water, and of course upon meeting another duck.  We drove down the main strip in town before heading out toward Table Rock Lake.  We took a drive to the top of an area where they mined the rock to make the table rock dam.  While at the top there were numerous old military vehicles for you to see.  It also gave us great views of Table Rock Lake.  Upon coming down from the top we crossed over the highway to the area where you board the Branson Belle to "splash down" into Table Rock Lake.  At that point our duck captain, Captain Stumpy allowed the passengers aboard the duck the opportunity to drive the duck, even kids were allowed to take a turn.

  After our duck ride we went to the Shepherd of The Hills Fish Hatchery.  The fish hatchery is where they raise the trout that are later released into Lake Ranneycomo.  We were able to feed the numerous trout in the holding tanks.  Then we went to the overlook to get a better view of Table Rock Lake Dam.  Then we headed down to Branson landing for the evening.  We had dinner at Cantina Laredo overlooking the fountains at Branson landing.  We were lucky to be seated on the outdoor balcony which allowed us a up close view of the light and fire show.  We were close enough to feel the heat.  After supper we wandered around Branson landing for a while before cathcing the final fire/light show of the night.  Then it was back to the hotel to rest up before the drive home.
